    Japanese fusion, sashimi all fresh and the grilled scallop is surprisingly an interesting dish, dessert heaven for all those sweet tooth indulgers, went here on sat night service was not so pleasant.

    Really delicious food. The grilled salmon was phenomenal. If you want to splash out a bit, go with the Sora tasting menu :)

    Great atmosphere, long wait for a table but worth it. Expensive dishes but if you go with friends everything can be shared. Miso salmon was the piece de resistance! Amazing.

  • Jonathan R.

    This place is simply amazing. Easily the best Japanese food I've had in Australia.. If you know if better, I'd love to hear about it

    High quality Japanese demands a high price. Very diverse range of delicious and unique cocktails. There can be a long wait for walkins at peak times - have a cocktail at the bar while you wait.

    We're waiting 1 hour and they forgot about costume

    Attentive service for a walk-in on a Saturday night. We sat in the Bar area by the window which was quieter on a busy evening. Zucchini Wafu and Pumpkin Tempura are must light eats. Sashimi is fab

    Good selection of cocktails. If you're after a refresher, try the pineapple and mint. Do not leave without trying the spicy edemame. Other good options are the tempura soft shell crab & lamb ribs.Yum!

    Amazing food but don't expect to have a conversation. The music is deafening. Great music but dies it have to be that loud.

    Tokonoma: Just get the tsuchi or sora tasting menus, 11 courses in the tchuch over 2 hours - amazing flavours and combinations. Great house music adds to the atmosphere

  • Clare T.

    As good as any other Jap restaurant. Not really fusion or anything different, where u can get same quality elsewhere for cheaper. Service is also minimal.

    Clare Tai · April 16, 2013
  • Wendy T.

    Best Japanese I've eaten in Sydney. The seared beef is amazing. Service was very good but if you're not patient you might find the food a bit slow to come out.

    Wendy Tran · April 3, 2013
  • Evgeny M.

    Definitely try Hiramasa no Usuzukuri & also Toko Signature scallop- Hotate no ponzu to wasabi ae gunkan. Simple, but extraordinary dishes.

    The grilled scallops are the bomb. Must also try the beef skewers, zucchini, barramundi and seared salmon sushi roll if you are a gangster.

    Overall excellence! 9/10 for great tasting food, ambiance and staff. The only downside was the quantity for its price.
